One Crazy Summer

Well its been quite a crazy summer so I haven't posted anything for quite awhile. My step father was diagnosed with Frontal Temporal Dementia (FTD) in early June, so we've been away from home every weekend helping out my mom and dealing with dysfunctional families. Have never been so glad to be an only child.

For the next two weeks I'm living in a hotel in Hadley Ma while working on and acting in an independent feature. It is a violent opus called "Chaos Unlimited." My role is 'Head Thug' -- I pretty much just swear a lot, beat people with a bat and get shot in the head. Just my average weekend.

I sure haven't had a chance to see everything, but here is a quick Summer Movie rundown. Caught the documentary METALLICA: Some Kind of Monster yesterday in Boston and loved it. You don't need to know or care about METALLICA to enjoy the film, and if you do have opinions on the band this might change some of them. My comedy hero Will Ferrell has done it again. ANCHORMAN is easily the funniest movie I've seen in some time - probably since ELF. Another funny enjoyable flick was FAHRENHEIT 9/11 - just don't try to tell me its a documentary. Finally THE VILLAGE was a movie I was really looking forward to and really loved... until the very end. Don't want to give anything away, so I'll just say that I felt kind of cheated - but then decided to give the film credit for making me feel that way. So M. Night is still batting a thousand in my book.
